I worked with Marshall for many years. We did have great times. I still love to catch Rocky Horror on TV when it's on. It brings back great memories.

I remember installing the garden in 1976 with the company I worked for(Garden Milieu inc. ) and the later opening of the theater Taubman/United Artist. It was such a wonderful experience and privilege for me to be involved with the birth of this facilityBeautiful movie theater.

Ah yes. I managed the Movies at Prudential back in 1979. I can now walk into any theatre and know if they show Rocky Horror. There is just something distinctive about the smell of wet newspaper and rice.

I remember all the fun we had watching Rocky Horror Picture Show. Those are certainly the days that I miss.

I worked there 4 years, moonlighting back and forth with Tel-ex cinema, this placed was the bomb on rocky horror nights, i was a usher and concession stand person. the movies were top of the line.

nothing in common Gandhi, and about last night. but the kids from all over came dressed up for rocky horror.

I do miss it truly.

I was projectionist at the Prudential in the 1980''s. We had some really great midnight shows on the weekends. Rocky Horror was really wild, with tons of audience participation and great costumes. We also showed Heavy Metal and Pink Floyd''s The Wall. I remember showing the premier of ET also.

One weekend night after the midnight shows, I ran a special sneak preview of Flash Gordon for the ushers and concession kids. It was to open the following day and we had the print all ready to show. Those were great times and great folks. I miss that place.

A recent visit to this facility shows that the former snack bar serves coffee, the ticket booth area has been walled off and the auditorium entrances are still present. Although the doors were locked, it appears that the auditoriums may be intact and are being used for storage. The ticket booth used to be to the left of the entrances - the outline is still visible. This theatre had large auditoriums with good sound and large screens. I remember seeing Gone with the Wind here in the 1980s - it was a special re-release of the film after it had been completely restored and it played here for several months.

This theatre was located in an office complex and it was a little difficult to find, which I think led to its eventual demise.
